No.I love sitting in the quite woods during bow season before the November infantry comes out.

Obviously that's not a good reason to prevent it from happening.just stating why I wouldn't want it

Absolutely NOT! And crossbows should be for the disabled and youth only.

Never happen, it would be my guess having crossbows allowed sells a lot of archery permits.

No , and I disagree with banning crossbows , cause if u go by that people who shoot recurves and long bows could say compounds are a unfair advantage ! Which they are if compared to a recurve same as comparing a compound to a crossbow . IMO .


That tired old argument is not even valid. A compound bow is just a souped up recurve. Same range of motion. Same difficulty in getting drawn on a deer and holding for a shot. A crossbow is more like shooting a gun than a bow.

Id like TN mirror the northern neighbor's seasons. Have a week of shotgun and it would generally fall just post rut.

Bonus weekend and then a late season ML.

That tired old argument is not even valid. A compound bow is just a souped up re-curve. Same range of motion. Same difficulty in getting drawn on a deer and holding for a shot. A crossbow is more like shooting a gun than a bow.
Are you trying to convince folks that Compound Bows do not give a hunter a distinct advantage over a Recurve or long Bow??

That is ridiculous!!

A compound with a 50%+ let-off allows an archer to hold at full draw longer and steadier.

If we want to get back to an archery season that would be a "pure archery season" then we would have to ban: crossbows, compounds, re-curves, sights, silencers, releases, mechanical broad-heads, carbon shafts, aluminum shafts, plastic fletching and any other advancement that would be an improvement on a long bow with cedar shafts fetched with feathers and tipped with a fixed blade broad-head that would be preferably knapped out of a piece of flint.

Nobody said anything about "pure" archery. But a bow is a bow and a crossbow is like shooting a 50 yard gun. Completely different.

Yes have just a deer season. open on oct 1-JAN 1 And any weapon is legal but yoyou have a set number of deer allowwed to take.


I've been advocating that for years, simply because I'm tired of hearing hunters argue over who should have the most hunting days, bow hunters versus gun hunters versus pistol hunters, etc.

Just make it deer season. Let hunters choose which weapon they want to hunt with.
